To dredge or not to dredge? Woodland ponds

Angus at advises on pond dredging.


About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.

    Many people I speak to say that it is much easier to let a pond overgrow completely if it hasn’t been managed for a while, and just create a new one nearby….. but this is a useful link, thanks 🙂

      That makes sense, if space is ample. I’ve never actually managed a pond except ones with artifical liners, in small gardens, so I learned from Angus’ words here. How about you? Are you managing woodland ponds?
